Stayed here over BH weekend.Staff were very helpful on arrival and our room was comfortable, although the four poster was a little rickety - we also had some issues with our shower which were quickly sorted out.

This great little B&B is easy to find and it is about a 4 minute walk in to the village of Ambleside.The breakfast was fab and our room view was 10 out of 10. If I come back to Ambleside again, we would be staying at the Dixon's B&B again. Well done and we'll see you soon.

The Dixons were most hospitable and attentive and they made wonderful breakfast and sandwiches. The room and bathroom were very clean and nice too. The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood, beautiful setting with a nice view to the common green and local church.

We stayed here in late June and although it is in a good location - literally a 5-minute walk to the centre of Ambleside and has car parking facilities, we felt the accommodation was average and overpriced. Our room was small but clean with nicely co-ordiated soft furnishings. However, the four-poster bed was rickety and uncomfortable and in dire need... More

We had a lovely stay at Rothay Garth. We were greeted by an extremely friendly host, who turned out to be the mother of the family who run the Guest house.
